Oven-Poached Figs

Local cheeses, such as Cowgirl Creamery's Mount Tam and Red Hawk, pair beautifully with figs oven-poached in red wine and spices.

    umm, those four stars in my previous comment were a word for a type of party where you serve mixed drinks (named after rooster tails) but i didn't know it would be censored out - sorry!

    I made these yesterday for a cocktail party served with brie and baguette and they got rave reviews! Some figs seemed like they might be starting to go so I quartered each fig before poaching to make sure they were fresh. I did make some mods to avoid running to the store; here's exactly what i used: 1/4 c. port, 1/4 c. water, 3 tbsp. honey, 1/4 c. orange juice, 1 stick cinnamon, sprinkle of powdered vanilla (common here in france), 2 whole cloves, 1/2 t. peppercorns
